I thought Flash had been behaving. Oh well.
Yeah, he's reasonable to talk to and not thick skulled like GoingNuts for example. He seems to have a very single tracked mind when it comes to car topics though, and lately he treats the moderators and admin like his own personal army to ban anybody that says anything mean about him instead of just leaving the argument. I've blocked him, and hopefully nothing bad will come if I don't "troll" him, however Tim defines trolling, and don't respond to him.

Yes. Overly complicated electric handles will break and leave you stranded.

It very much exists. But it's in a bit of a state. Imagine if you went in for surgery, and the crew just sort of left you on the operating table with your vital organs out while they went on extended lunches, happy hour, picked up the kids from school, ran errands, etc.

Yeah... I just had a bunch of dim sum, which was just seafood wrapped in carbs, fried carbs, carbs and fat, and fat with a dipping sauce.

At least I ate in moderation, which I never do with dim sum.

I wish BMW would have a service position for their bonnet. You would think, as often as the cars need work...

Way to personify my car and make me seem like the most negligent doctor in the world.
